Williston, ND (WDAY TV) -- A North Dakota official says 6 proposed pipelines could diminish the importance of the Keystone XL pipeline for North Dakota.

Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer says the line is still important for national and energy security but not necessary to move North Dakota oil to refineries.

TransCanada Corporation's pipeline would move Canadian oil to Texas, but it's held up by federal approval to cross the border.

It would also pick up oil from North Dakota and Montana.
